Well presented, and with a light comedy touch, a conspiracy resulting in 4 murders can be solved just by following the story.

How did the detective know the second death was murder and not suicide when he declared it to the household at the beginning of the second act? I don't know. No clues are shown or reason given. A motive isn't discovered until a little later. The explanation given by the criminologist as to how the device used in the last murder (and for something else, but I won't tell) worked seemed a stretch. These points aside, I very much enjoyed the show. It kept me engaged.

There are some interesting characters to watch, good acting, and the director uses unusual camera angles for effect, and they mostly worked well.

I downloaded the 408MB AVI file. Video is in good shape. The dialog is understandable, but there is an oppressive hiss throughout.
